Rome is covered in a blanket of snow. The Italian capital woke up to this sight. After an Arctic storm dusted it with snow overnight. It is the heaviest snowfall in the past six years leaving a few inches of snow in the streets. Most of the schools are closed and public transport services are reduced. The army was sent to help clear the streets but Romans are enjoying every bit of snow! From just playing around in the squares to skiing down the hills at the Circo Massimo. But Rome isn’t the only city covered in snow. Lots of Northern European cities have been hit by the Arctic blast. Temperatures are unusually low for this time of the year making it the coldest winter in almost a decade. But the cold comes with some perks: like these stunning images of Rome. It is so beautiful!
